Been waiting for this. Have yet to pick up the physical edition, so I might as well add this to my growing collection of iPad board games.

You beat me to it Madame tini!

I'm so happy, I really wasn't happy with the clone implementations, so it'll be nice to have this.

Mm-hmm, I noticed that a thread for this app had been conspicuously absent all day, so I just stopped waiting and made it myself. :P

Oddly enough, despite being available pretty much world-wide, this app still isn't available in the NZ store. >_<

This looks soooo slick. I need to get this. Makes Fourth Seal and that other one look like the amateur knockoffs that they are. Although to be fair to Fourth Seal, it never pretended to be anything else, nor did they ever charge anything for what they knew was a copy of someone else's work.

Dude, this. Is. The. Best. Game. EVER.

Let's see, best tutorial ever. Amazing and very atmospheric music that, while a bit melodramatic, but it works.

There is a bit of weird lag from time to time, but that may be due to the tutorial, i haven't had the chance to play a full game.

But I will say this, board game developers of the world, this game right here is the pinnacle of perfection. The tutorial was brilliant, being able to win your first game was excellent, even if the likelihood of winning on your own might be pretty low. I felt engaged every step of the way, and love how the tutorial gives you just enough to go on, and then let's you finish the game on your own. Sure, you are guaranteed to win, but you really feel a connection. If this had online, it would be game of the bloody decade.

What amazes me about pandemic is how simple it is, but it has more depth than you realize. Building the right team and knowing how to capitalize on their actions is vital.

If you've played elder SIGN, not scrolls (I'm a moron), that's very similar to this. You can use pass and play, but it's perfect as a solo game, too.

I couldn't be happier. After seeing it on Wil wheatons tabletop show, I was dying to get my hands on it.

It's never been a better time to be a board game player.


Again, all developers (including playdek, big daddy and such) THIS IS HOW YOU MAKE A TUTORIAL! Get it?

Good. No more crap. I still have no idea how to play Argricola. None.

I'm pretty sure those games aren't even remotely similar. Elder Sign, maybe?
